EVERETT, Wash. - The death toll in the deadly Washington state mudslide has risen to 30, and one of the victims has been identified as the stepson of a Pittsburgh-area native.

Officials found the body of 13-year-old Jovon Mangual on Thursday.  He’s the stepson of Washington County native Billy Spillers.

Spillers and one of his children, 2-year-old Brooke, are still missing.

The body of his 5-year-old daughter, Kaylee, was found last week.

Spillers’ 4-year-old son, Jacob, was found alive in the rubble.  He was among the first rescued by helicopter.

Spillers and his children were watching television when the mudslide hit, obliterating their street.  His wife wasn’t home, and she’s safe.
